Summary: I purchased this scanner because of its stackable slide loader. That was a disappointment. The slides often stuck in the scanner, slowing down the process. The scanning procedure is not intuitive, resulting in missed or duplicate scans.
Excerpt: Face images are always washed out. Almost every slide needs to be edited for brightness and color balance. If you want a fast scan, it is OK. If you need a good quality final image, it takes a lot of editing for brightness, and color balance. It can be done, but it takes a lot of time.
Cons: Attracts Dust, Difficult to Load, Not Versatile
Excerpt: Easy enough to use, but replication from slide>digital is relatively poor. Brightness and color match to original very inconsistent. Some ability to correct, but time consuming and disappointing.
Pros: OK for base amateur
Cons: Brightness inconsistent, Color resolution poor, Requires manipulation, Slow
Excerpt: Scanner is not identified or recognized without a great deal of effort. Must reboot, re-run the software, check the driver and change ports in order to use after it has been unplugged and restarted. Quality of scan is OK once you cn get it to work.
Excerpt: I wanted to transfer my negatives to the computer. Most of the pictures from the scanned negatives have very bad color & can't always be corrected; most of the ones I am able to correct still aren't accurate colors; slides have much better color.
